One of Australia’s oldest winter swimming clubs turns 90 this year, and everyone’s welcome to join the party.
Bondi Icebergs Club was formed back in 1929 to help lifesavers maintain their fitness during the colder months, and this winter it’s turning 90. Anniversary festivities have been planned to coincide with the recently completed interior refresh and the launch of a new Club Bistro menu in mid-May.
Notable events for the diary include a special induction day on April 28, when new members from postcodes 2026, 2022 and 2024 will be able to join for as little as $25 per year. (This includes access to the club and discounts on food and drinks.)
There’ll also be a charity swim that day to support cancer patients, with all funds donated to the Nelune Foundation and the Kinghorn Cancer Centre at St Vincent’s Hospital.
